Kyouran Kazoku Nikki 03

Kyouran Kazoku Nikki

Rather more serious, BAWWW episode, as the final member of the Kyouran Kazoku cast is finally incorporated in.

Himemiya Senko, Yuka’s real sister, comes back to torment her in to returning home to become their “Solitude Doll” back, as she’s pushed back in to the role. Along the way, we find out that Ginka has met her before as a child, and even promised to “save her” but he didn’t quite manage to do it until Kyouka decides to destroy the Himemiya clan to stop the brutalities.

Of course, the frenzy begins, as the Midarezaki’s totally and utterly destroy the Himemiya manor, Kyouka even putting a hole in a Mona Lisa painting after nicely using it as a deadly weapon, and they cap it off with some “big fireworks”. In the end, Senko is retested for her candidacy as a Child of Enka, and while she isn’t really one, Kyouka decides to cheat a bit, and she’s rechristened as Midarezaki Chika. めでたし~ めでたし~

This show sure keeps throwing me off and I didn’t expect such engaging drama right after the insanity of episode 1. Nevertheless it was rather good, and it managed to engender quite some sympathy in me for Chika, for being a poor victim of such abuse for all this while. I hear she’s gonna be quite awesome in the next episode from Mentar, so I’m eagerly awaiting for it.

Ginka was also pretty awesome this episode, and despite his feminity, this fella’s quite the man. I’m seeing him in a whole new light after this episode. There’s more than meets the eye about Gekka too, with that mysterious mind-invasion ability of hers, plus it’s hinted that she’s really pretty ancient as well. Wonder what’s her backstory?

Speaking of which, kudos to the Eclipse team, for actually translating the rap portions of the OP. This people really do take their jobs seriously. Keep up the good work!

    What tsudai said. This post fails for lack of Suigintou mention.

    Is it just me or does albinos make everything better?

    “she’s suigintou”

    But does she have the voice? If she doesn’t have the voice, she’s not quite Suigintou. (Voice love is a terrible thing sometimes.)

    I find this show a lot more entertaining when it’s being random, but they pulled off a little sweetness surprisingly well. I really hope the Yuuka-as-punching-bag thing is over, though, it was just getting gratuitous. But much respect to Ginka for being gay and very nearly GAR at the same time.

    It was a fun episode. I think it needs moar comedy though. I’m ready for more Chika and Ginka antics.

    I talked with Mentar on IRC. He says the opening was hard too do. So good job Eclipse!
